On the Proper Use of Stars
If you like to be transported in a different time but based on actual historical records, than you will like this. Originally published in French this book recounts the Franklin expedition on both sides of the Atlantic. The book is slated for a movie which I think will do well. Just the words alone lend themselves to elaborate sets, costumes and exotic locations. From powerful Europe to the emptiness of the Artic. Overall Rating *** (3 stars out of 5)
